Healthcare managers produce a program design map that consists of a logic model. This model consists of program inputs (resources), processes (activities), and outputs (outcomes). This map is used to communicate the expected outcomes and resource demands to any of your local and/or community stakeholders. The activities within the program design map also demonstrate how the flow of health services will occur within the context of the program. The successful completion of this milestone will assist you in the creation of your final project.
For this milestone, you will create a program design map by developing a logic model. Be sure to include the following elements in this submission:
· Identify key organizational stakeholders and discuss their relationship to your proposed program. Which members of the organization should be involved and why? What role will they play?
· Create a logic model using the native tool in Microsoft Word or a similar word processing program. Consult the textbook and supporting resources located in the course to assist you in designing your logic model. Be sure to include the following elements within your logic model:
o Resources or Inputs: Consider human, financial, organizational, and community resources.
o Activities: What does the program do with the resources? Activities are the processes, tools, events, technology, and actions that are an intentional part of the program implementation.
o Outputs: These are short-, medium-, and long-term definitions of outcome criteria.
· Finally, assign appropriate connections and feedback loops for the logic model.
Guidelines for Submission: Your paper for this milestone must be submitted as a 2- to 3-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins, and APA formatting.
The paper will focus on the Institute for Genomic Medicine at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. For more than three years now, the institute has been trying to develop the pediatric cancer and genomic program (Hawkins, 2016). The goal of developing the program has been enhancing the therapeutic wellness of children patients.
